ABC and NBC won’t to run an ad critical of ObamaCare

One more testament to the media love affair with Barack Hussein Obama is the report that ABC and NBC won’t to run an ad critical of ObamaCare.

The 33-second ad by the League of American Voters, which features a neurosurgeon who warns that a government-run health care system will lead to the rationing of procedures and medicine, began airing two weeks ago on local affiliates of ABC, NBC, FOX and CBS.

On a national level, however, ABC and NBC have refused to run the spot in its present form.

"It's a powerful ad," said Bob Adams, executive director of the League of American Voters, a national nonprofit group with 15,000 members who advocate individual liberty and government accountability.

"It tells the truth and it really highlights one of the biggest vulnerabilities and problems with this proposed legislation, which is it rations health care and disproportionately will decimate the quality of health care for seniors."

A doctor in the ad asks: "How can Obama's plan cover 50 million new patients without any new doctors? It can't."

Dick Morris (pictured), a FOX News political analyst and the League of American Voters' chief strategist, conceptualized the advertisement and said its purpose was to "refocus" the debate on health care reform.

"I feel the whole debate on health care reform needed to be refocused on the issue of Medicare," he told "Most of the debate had been on issues of socialized medicine and cost. I felt that the impact of the legislation in cutting the Medicare program and enforcing rationing needed to be addressed."

Dick Morris is a former advisor to former President Bill Clinton.

ObamaCare will force the medical community to suddenly care for 50 million new patients.

The new patients will be illegal aliens, gang members as well as young people who would rather spend their money on boats, sport cars and other toys rather then on medical insurance premiums.
